Got this nice looking old Peugeot MTB from my girlfriend's dad, it was sitting in the garage and I liked the paintjob. Goal was to make it a nice and comfy commuter. I kept as many original parts as I could. The bike got fresh big tyres to battle with the rough london roads, a new 1x drivetrain with a nice Ofmega crankset. I fitted a nice Wald basket to carry anything very conveniently and fitted a chrome moustache bar for a more upright position. Very happy with the result. You can see the bike before its transformation just below.
